Vancouver patient oozes green blood

Doctors at Vancouver’s St. Paul’s Hospital came across something highly illogical when they tried to put an arterial line into a patient about to undergo surgery: his blood was dark green . . . . .

“During insertion, we normally see arterial blood come out. That’s how we know we’re in the right place. And normally that blood is bright red, as you would expect in an artery,” Flexman said in an interview Thursday.

“But in his case, the blood kept coming back as dark green instead of bright red.

“It was sort of a green-black. … Like an avocado skin maybe.”

Well Rain? Is this some horrible side effect of the Lorne Greene School of Broadcasting? Or some mutant offspring of John Dieffenbaker?

at the local ‘Megalomart,’ I saw a display for a product titled with three words that evoke an obscene, horrific image . . . . .

Metamucil Berry Blast

Some young ad exec type should be shot.
